What is EGM?

EGM or Erasmus Generation Meeting is an international conference where the Erasmus Generation will come together to learn and discuss different topics related to the new Erasmus+ programme and the future of mobility.

When and where is the event happening?

The event is going to be in person in Porto from 7th to 10th of April 2022. It is organised by Erasmus Student Network Portugal and Erasmus Student Network AISBL.

What is the theme in this edition?

The central theme of the EGM 2022 will be the new Erasmus+ programme. The year 2021 marked the start of the new Erasmus+ programme, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate this remarkable occasion than to dedicate the meeting of the Erasmus Generation to it. This means that the majority of the content will revolve around the four priorities of the new Programme - environmental sustainability, social inclusion, digitalisation, and democratic participation.
